    Bowling Green and Trinity

    The two best programs in the state currently, no question about that.

    They played each other before but have stopped.

    What would it take to get the two premier programs in the state on the field together again?

    Coaching changes on both sides...

    Just my opinion...

    Additionally, I think in the recent past (past 4 or 5 years) I don't think their mutual schedules were very compatible. I mean if T had an opening week 1, BG only had an opening Week 10, just for example purposes.

    A coaching change at Trinity would make any difference, the AD makes the schedule not the coach, at least as of only a few years ago and I have not heard anything about that changing.

    If you all don't believe the coach at BGHS and the coach at Trinity doesn't have the ear of their AD's, you are mistaken. Perhaps a school that has minimal or no success on the gridiron but a BGHS or Trinity who are in national rankings will allow their coach to take part in their schedules. Guarunteed!

    Yeah I'm not buying the coach not having a say in the schedule.

    Coach Beatty has been vocal in the past about not liking the extensive travel on their schedule. I believe he doesn't have much say.

    I will agree to disagree that Coach Beatty "doesn't have much say" in Trinity's schedule. A coach with his accomplishments and all that he's done doesn't have a say in their schedule I find unrealistic. Again my opinion.

    Isn't there bad blood between these two schools that prevents a game from being scheduled or has that animosity passed? I am pretty sure at one point it was bad blood behind the contract not being renewed.

    If I am wrong please correct me but that is my understanding.

    Exactly what I was thinking...while I don't think there is as much tension between the two programs as there was a few years ago, I think BG is happy with their schedule and probably don't see much reason to change it up much.

    I would say so. It basically guarantees Coach Wallace another 9-10 win season.

    Yeah, those 9-10 win regular seasons and state championships really do stink.

    BG beat those five teams by an average 28 points per game. They are top tier teams in the state compared to average teams. They're no longer competitive with BG. Playing McCallie and Blackmon, that's more like it.
    BG won by 48 in the state title game. It's time to step up.

    BG beat Christian by 15 pts in the playoffs, hardly chopped liver. If it not for Christian already having their schedule locked in, they'd have scheduled Trinity this year. I know that nobody pays attention to the western side of the state, but to insinuate that because BG is not playing one Cincinnati team a year, they need to "step up" is a bit of a stretch.
